Dog lovers of Fire Mountain–don’t give up!
We may not get our Reservoir Dog Park this year at the Water Tower on Fire Mountain Drive, but there’s still an under-the-radar park we can all run and play in. It’s Joe Carassco Park, down by the tracks (almost). And here’s an interesting tidbit I just learned: the reason it’s a park is that Dunstan (of Dunstan street) built some of those houses on fill–and eight of them slid off their pads. Since the ground was unstable, voila! We got a park!
JOSEPH CARRASCO PARK
I-5 to Oceanside Blvd., east on Oceanside Blvd. to Crouch Street, south on Crouch for one block to Skylark
|Named for:||Originally named for its location on Skylark Drive, the park was renamed in 1990 for Joseph Carrasco for his numerous contributions to the development of the park|
(It’s all grass–be sure to clean up after your pooch so the kids can play soccer here, too!)
